I tried to resist you Squidbillies, but you sucked me in

SquidbilliesBlame the influence of friends; I do. Because we couldn't get the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie to play right, we ended up jumping into Volume 2 of Squidbillies. Now I'd seen part of one episode of this (where Rusty makes his deal with the devil), but I changed the channel. I'm not sure why I resisted the Cuylers. I love ATHF, so you'd think it would be right up my alley, considering it's by one of ATHF's creators. Hell, it even features the voice of Master Shake as Granny.

Even when we first started watching it last night, with Season 3, Episode 1 I was reluctant to say I was enjoying it. Eleven episodes later and I was laughing out loud when Granny was transformed with road kill skin grafts and an udderly disgusting boob job. It's a tradition in our house to look at one another at the end of each episode of ATHF and say "what the f**k did we just watch?!" Squidbillies gives me that same feeling of ridiculous. Not to mention the characters remind me of some of the people who live in the small Midwest town I find myself now.

I always feel, after watching an episode of Squidbillies, like someone has whipped out their junk and slapped me upside the head with it.

Squidbillies is amazing. Not just funny, but in a very real way, it captures a part of the south that simply doesn't show up anywhere else in pop culture. The Trailer Park Boys of Northwest Georgia. If you grew up in or near the NW GA woods, you'll recognize at least a few tidbits on the show.

I never laugh at the show, but the theme song "Warrior Man" is superb, and I wish they'd release the full-length version.

About time Squidbillies got some recognition here. Awesome show--and a veritable reimagining of the English language every week.
